Earlier this month, we heard rumors that coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera planned to introduce a new bespoke version of the Bentley Continental GT. Now we've got confirmation that the firm will indeed introduce an shooting brake based on the GT at the Geneva Motor Show early next month.

Only 20 three-door estates are planned, and they'll reportedly be built atop the buyer's choice of a regular Continental GT or an uplevel Continental GT Speed. This will be the company's first product based on a vehicle from Bentley, though past models included the likes of Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini.

We don't have many details other than the teaser sketch above and that the GT will have two rear seats that fold independently, making for what we can only assume will be the World's Most Luxurious Six-Foot Luggage Parcel. An electrically operated folding tailgate is also on the menu.

      Dear God...

      This is going to be the best looking car in the world. I'm confident of that.

      Shooting brake, or just a 3 door hatch.
      Nice anyway!

      I'll put Bentley rims on a 2008 Dodge Magnum. (jk)

      Oh my gosh! Please! A modern (albeit much more expensive) P1800ES.

      It kinda look like a short station wagon.................I hope I am wrong

        Exactly. That's what a shooting brake is. Not a real desirable archetype anymore, unfortunately.

        Touring needs to go back to their heritage and build a modern Barchetta. That O.G. Ferrari for road and track alike is over 60 years old now yet is becoming increasingly perfect for the times. The small, elemental "little boat" of the era of hill climbs & rallies is sorely missing from the autoscape. As light weight is becoming the engineering brief for all cars, Touring would be wise to capitalize on their history and re-position themselves accordingly.
